由于行业管道项目很少,Copper Road 的勘探故事值得关注 – Richard Mills

2023.07.24 简而言之,实现净零排放的道路始于铜,终于铜。所有支持可再生能源的基础设施都使用大量铜,因为金属是高效的电和热导体。 为了保持能源转型的继续,将需要数百万英尺的铜线来加强世界电网,并且还需要数十万吨的铜线来建设风能和太阳能发电厂。例如,海上风力涡轮机每兆瓦发电量含有 8 吨铜。 电动汽车现在是需求快速增长的一个来源,其使用的铜量是汽油动力汽车的两倍多,汽油动力汽车的铜含量约为 30 公斤。更不用说,平均每个家庭都有超过 180 公斤的铜,这提醒我们这种金属是多么不可或缺。 综上所述,展望未来,对铜的需求将是惊人的。 铜供应缺口 麦肯锡预计,到 […]

北极海冰迅速缩小意味着更极端的天气规律

有时,我们需要加拿大四月的一场冰风暴才能真正意识到全球变暖的影响。 科学家发现,北极——“气候变化的前线”——的升温速度是世界其他地区的四倍。这在很大程度上与所谓的 “北极放大” 现象(即海冰的消失)有关。 北极冰盖缩小 北冰洋大部分覆盖着一层波光粼粼的海冰。但随着地球变暖,海冰开始消散,暴露出更多的海洋表面,使热量从温暖的海水中释放到寒冷的大气中。随着越来越多的冰从海洋中消失,北极的温度上升得越来越快,这反过来又使海冰容易进一步融化。 来自国家冰雪数据中心(NSIDC)的临时数据显示,今年北极海冰冬季峰值已达到有记录以来的第五低。 北极海冰的范围在一年中都在变化——在冬季增长,在二月或三月达到全年的峰值,然后在整个春季和夏季融化,达到全年的最低值,通常在九月左右。 利用卫星数据,科学家可以跟踪海冰的生长和融化,从而确定冰盖冬季最大范围的大小,以此来监测北极的 “健康” 程度。 根据 NSIDC […]
